Downtime and Version 1.0.0.7 Insights

U.S.G.N. Service Downtimes
the server provider for the U.S.G.N. master server has scheduled some updates which may lead to reboots and therefore short down times of the master server. The online server list and the U.S.G.N. account login won't be available in this time. Down times will probably just take a few minutes so most of you shouldn't even notice them.

You will still be able to play during that time and you won't be kicked from any server because of a U.S.G.N. downtime.

Down times may occur within these time frames. All times are UTC+2 (Germany):
26-Mar-2018 – 27-Mar-2018, 10:00 PM to 06:00 AM (UTC+2)
27-Mar-2018 – 28-Mar-2018, 10:00 PM to 06:00 AM (UTC+2)
28-Mar-2018 – 29-Mar-2018, 10:00 PM to 06:00 AM (UTC+2)

Version 1.0.0.7 Insights
We are currently working hard on CS2D version 1.0.0.7 which will hopefully be released next week / within this month.

Some new key features are:

Steam Support On Linux & MacOS
Steam login and achievements will finally work on Linux and MacOS as well! Hooray!

Killcam
When you die you will now see a visual effect and the camera will scroll to the player who killed you. Same when the guy you specated gets killed. This can be configured (and also disabled) with a number of new settings.

(No) Off-Screen Damage
There will be a fancy new server setting with huge impact on game play. You will be able to completely disable all "off-screen damage". If you do so players will only be able to damage other players and objects which are inside their visible screen area!
This is an experimental new setting we added because some people from the community asked for it / complained about being shot by enemies they don't see. By default you will still be able to damage things outside the visible screen like in previous versions.

Improved Mod Support
CS2D already has mod support but this feature will be improved a lot in version 1.0.0.7! You will be able to switch enabled mods in the main menu. You will also be able to enable mods on the server so all players on the server see the same mod.

And more...
Of course there will be more. A lot of bug fixes, optimizations, improvements and additions!

Update 02-Apr-2018
The 1.0.0.7 update will be delayed for a few days because of some technical problems. We will try to release it this week. Thank you for your patience!
